They got a little muddy Sunday in Huntersville, but it was for a good cause.

The 11th annual Habitat Mud Volleyball tournament, at the Bryton Development, raised money for Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte.

All money from the tournament will go to Habitat Young Professionals’ goal of sponsoring a new Habitat home, a $75,000 commitment, according to the website for the tournament.

The event – also known as “Murphy’s Dirty 30” Mud Volleyball Tournament – was started by Tim Murphy and his friends in 2007 to mark his 30th birthday.
